I love the amazing choice of restaurants and shacks there.
I love people watching while im sitting on that beach, trying to say no thanks to the beach seller that trys to sell me my 25th sarong.
Getting recognised by shack owners even though its been 4 years since my last visit. (how the hell do they do that)
Ill always go up north or down south for a few days away but i love coming back.
Its the perfect mix of madness but yet you can find a peacful spot if you want to.
For a first timer maybe Candolim would be a more gentle introduction to the madness of Goa.
Always do trips to the quieter beaches when I do want some peace.
I do love Palolem and Agonda though and spending a couple of nights in a beach hut.
We know so many people there now.
It is quieter than Calangute.
More choice for places to eat during the Day & Night.
Head off to the South for a couple of days each year for easy swimming breaches.
Since then we have stayed in candolim, less like India, more of a resort but has busy bits and quiet bits. Near enough to all the other stuff you might need,but far enough away if you want peace and quiet.
We will definitlley have to check out some of the southern resorts for comparison ,maybe next year!
Candolim for it's beach and restaurants and half way feel between India and Europe.
Calangute for it's India feel and hidey hole cafes and shops.
Sinquerium for it's peace and laid back attitude, which will get back back to it's rightful former glory when the move the River Princess.
I too like daytrips to different beaches in Goa especially the Northern beaches.
